Female diseases, or diseases of the female genital organs, are quite diverse, and therefore they are classified into the following groups according to their origin:
- Inflammatory diseases: Vulvitis – inflammation of the external genital organs as a result of neglecting personal hygiene or diseases of the urinary system (primary) or inflammations of the reproductive organs (secondary). Colpitis – inflammation of the mucous membrane of the uterus due to an infection. Adnexitis or salpingo-oophoritis – inflammation of the ovaries and fallopian tubes due to infection. Ectopia (erosion) – inflammation of the mucous membrane of the vagina and cervix due to trauma or bacteria and papillomavirus.
- Hormonal diseases: Amenorrhea – the absence of the menstrual cycle for 6 months or more. Bacterial vaginosis – a non-inflammatory disease of the vaginal mucous membrane due to changes in the composition of the microflora. Vaginal or uterine bleeding – dysfunctional diseases due to ovarian dysfunction. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) – psychological, vegetovascular, and hormonal failures before the start of a new menstrual cycle. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – a change in the structure and functionality of the ovaries due to endocrine and neuro-exchange disorders.
- Hyperplastic female diseases: Cyst – a benign hollow growth with fluid inside on the ovaries, in the area of the uterus or vagina. Fibroids – a benign neoplasm in the muscular layer of the uterus as a result of increased levels of female hormones. Fibromyoma – a benign formation of connective tissue elements due to hormonal imbalance. Polyp – a benign formation in the uterine area or cervical canal. Endometriosis – active proliferation of the uterine endometrium due to decreased immunity, hormonal imbalance, or genetic diseases. Cervical cancer – a malignant tumor of the mucous lining of the cervix in the transition zone from cervical to vaginal epithelium. Uterine cancer – a malignant tumor disease of the endometrium, the internal epithelial layer.
A separate disease that should be highlighted is uterine prolapse. This is a pathological condition in which the bottom of the cervix shifts due to the weakening of its muscles and ligaments. In an advanced state, uterine prolapse can occur.
Common symptoms of female diseases are: menstrual cycle disorders, pain in the lower abdomen or lumbar region, abundant mucous discharge of different shades with or without odor, bloody discharge, uterine bleeding, discomfort, sometimes urinary disturbance, etc.
The causes of female diseases include: genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalance, infections, diseases of the urinary system, difficult pregnancies, and childbirth, etc.
Adverse factors contributing to the development of female diseases include: hypothermia, frequent partner changes, insufficient hygiene, smoking and alcohol, improper diet, weakened immunity, vitamin deficiency, heavy load, stress, etc.
Psychosomatics of Female Diseases
It has been revealed that how a woman perceives herself as a representative of the female sex and her sexuality, as well as beliefs and attitudes related to these aspects of her personality, all affect the health of her reproductive organs.
This is indicated by the very designation of diseases of the female genital organs as “female diseases,” which emphasizes their connection with female self-identification and the feeling of being a woman.
Since we are talking about the unhealthy state of female organs, this clearly indicates the absence of this feeling.
Another crucial factor in the occurrence of female diseases is a woman’s attitude towards close men (father, husband, brother). That is, the negative thoughts and feelings of a woman (girl, girl) towards them trigger negative processes in the sexual organs as well.
Psychological Causes of Some Female Diseases
According to psychologists’ observations, at the base of premenstrual syndrome is a deep rejection of one’s femininity. It has been revealed that this cause comes from childhood relationships with the mother as the first ideal of a woman.
Resentment, anger, irritation, fear, hatred towards the mother block the girl’s connection with the inner woman in adulthood. This is related to the fact that in childhood, due to problems in the relationship with the mother, the girl decides not to be like her, which means: not to be a woman. Dr. Sinelnikov claims that the genitals symbolize female principles, so problems with them (inflammation of the external genital organs, vaginitis, leucorrhoea) reflect the fear of not living up to expectations, fear for one’s femininity, doubts about one’s femininity.
Through these diseases, subconscious aggression towards men (resentment, irritation, contempt, anger) is also manifested. At the same time, the patient feels vulnerable as a woman, believes that women are powerless to influence the stronger sex.
Thrush occurs when a woman regrets lost spiritual purity, lives in longing for her ideal self. Thrush can be a consequence of thoughts about the dirtiness, sinfulness of the genitals or sex. Sometimes the psychosomatic cause of this disease is the belief in right and wrong decisions, as well as self-punishment for not meeting others’ expectations.
It has been revealed that at the base of untreatable chronic thrush lies a deep trauma (conflict, violence, etc.).
Ovaries, according to V. Sinelnikov, symbolize female creative centers, so problems with the ovaries talk about problems with the realization of the female principle in this world. Negative thought-blocks regarding oneself as a woman and regarding men hinder this.
According to psychologist Liz Burbo, problems with the fallopian tubes indicate a blocking of the connection between the male and female beginnings in oneself. Such a woman has difficulty in relationships with men and cannot build her life as she wants.
Salpingitis as inflammation of the tubes symbolizes suppressed anger.
Liz Burbo writes that adhesions occur in a person who has become callous and stubbornly clings to their beliefs and ideas to better withstand some aggression.
Fibroids symbolize hatred of someone or something living in a woman.
Polyps, as A. Astrogore writes in the book “Confessions of an ailment,” symbolize “frozen teardrops of self-pity.” The woman has many grievances against men, pities herself, and does not understand why she deserves this.
Fibroids reflect an unrealized subconscious desire to have a child due to an exaggerated importance of motherhood as an indicator of belonging to the female sex. That is, a woman wants to have a child because she believes that a woman without a child is not a woman.
It has been revealed that women with fibroids are characterized by long resentments towards their loved ones, a tendency to bad moods and depression.
Luule Viilma explains the appearance of fibroids by the fear of “not being loved” or a sense of guilt towards the mother.
Another cause of fibroids is excessive involvement in motherhood, militant thoughts related to motherhood, malice.
V. Sinelnikov points out that fibroids often appear in those who “harbor” inflicted insults and cannot forgive. The woman believes that her female pride has been insulted, blames herself as a woman, and accuses men.
The doctor emphasizes that women with fibroids do not know how or do not want to forgive. Another cause of fibroids can be a fear of uselessness or old age due to the weakening role of the mother in the family with grown children. At the same time, the woman lacks a vision of other ways to realize herself as a woman.
Uterine bleeding Dr. Luule Viilma explains by anger against those whom the woman blames for preventing her from being a good mother, whom she considers guilty of her maternal incompetence.
Sinelnikov writes that this ailment symbolizes joy leaving due to long-standing resentments and anger. Another cause he sees is dislike and contempt for the husband.
According to A. Astrogore, if a benign tumor says that a person is basically good but keeps resentment inside, then a malignant tumor contains “evil” – an attempt to take revenge on the offender.
The psychosomatic cause of uterine prolapse is also clearly explained by A. Astrogore: the woman “lowers” her femininity below the lowest level and starts to behave like a man, like a tomboy (not like a woman).
Psychosomatics of Cervical Erosion
Psychologists and doctors have identified at the root of this disease such a strong resentment of a woman against a man that the unreleased negative energy “eats away” from the inside.
Psychological characteristics of women with erosion show that they lack the ability to be feminine, understanding of how to realize themselves next to a man, how to use their female energy properly.
Such women experience conflicting feelings: they need to be feminine, but they do not want to give in to men. Hence, inside them, there is a struggle in defending their rights, which harms women’s health.
Dr. N. Volkova emphasizes that at the base of erosion are grievances against close men (father, husband, brother), and the basis of these grievances is expectation (“must”, “obliged”, etc.).
V. Sinelnikov in this disease sees wounded female pride, as well as confidence in being defective as a woman. A woman with erosion cannot and does not know how to realize herself as a woman. Dr. Luule Viilma found that dissatisfaction with sexual life can be the cause of erosion.
Psychosomatics of Endometriosis
Louise Hay points to such causes of the disease: feeling unprotected, disappointment and frustration, replacing love for oneself with sugar, reproaches.
Liz Burbo explains this disease by the woman’s inability to have a child because she loves to lead and “gives birth” to ideas in other areas.
Another cause of endometriosis can be the fear of childbirth as something dangerous, which overshadows even a strong desire for motherhood.
N. Volkova writes that women with this disease are characterized by negative thinking and an inability to enjoy life. They see the situation only from the bad side and fall into panic, not seeing a way out. They also have a pronounced lack of harmony between the psyche and the body. V. Sinelnikov sees the cause of endometriosis as a feeling of unprotectedness as a woman (feels that she is being attacked or expects bad from a man).
This disease can also be caused by a woman’s mental state when she cannot and does not know how to realize herself as a woman, so she reproaches both herself and men.
As the doctor notes, often the psychosomatic cause of endometriosis is a lack of love for the husband, but the woman stays with him out of decency and other feelings.
A. Astrogore explains the occurrence of this disease by the fact that a woman “puffed up, took offense, with bloody tears seeks pity and protection.” Therefore, she begins to discuss her life and husband with others. The author advises: do not take out the trash and dirt from the hut – it will return to you, but as spiritual dirt with manifestations in your body.
Paths to Healing
Healing from female diseases begins with remembering (as many forget) that you are in a female body (not a male one!) and realizing that you were born in a female body not just for nothing.
And why did you choose (yes, you chose it, or rather, your soul) a female body? Most likely, to get the necessary life experience for you (your soul) associated with female energies.
Considering that the purpose of the surrounding Divine World is development and perfection, the purpose of human life is also development and perfection.
That means you were born as a woman (in the body given to you by God) to develop in this direction, but not the opposite!
What does it mean to “develop as a woman”?
To open your Heart (in which a woman is strong), to raise the level of your female Consciousness, to develop in yourself female qualities: Love, Soulful Light and Warmth, Kindness, balance, softness, acceptance, respect, and obedience to your husband (given to you by God and chosen by you), etc.
Emphasizing female qualities does not mean that other qualities should be ignored by women: consciousness, intellect, courage, will, determination, diligence, etc. – just these qualities should be inherent in every civilized person.
Here the point is that women suffering from female diseases have very strongly developed general and male qualities, to the detriment of female qualities. And to remain a healthy woman, they need to maintain a balance, which is achieved with a slight predominance of female qualities. Let me explain. Even such a “female” emotion as resentment is based on male energy – aggression (here the aggression is veiled). Therefore, resentment destroys a woman from the inside if she keeps it in herself for a long time.
Another important point: if the cause is in attitudes and traumas from childhood. There is no one to blame here, as your mother did not know all these subtleties at the time, so she built relationships as best she could.
The most effective way to heal the body and soul is to forgive. To forgive means to free yourself from all this burden that hung in your soul and sought liberation through diseases. Understand, if our loved ones knew, they would never have hurt us. I think no normal mother is capable of deliberately hurting her daughter. She wants what’s best, but it doesn’t always work out.
Understand and forgive. Free the soul from pain and let Love and Gratitude take its place. This is the shortest path to healing.
But the choice is yours.
